On Monday and Tuesday (November 27 and 28), the Christian Academy Schools board has committed to two days of prayer and fasting for the school. This is done in order to bring us into focus and in deeper touch with God as we embark on a 6 – 9 month process of seeking and implementing His ongoing vision for the school. The school has been truly blessed over the years and at this point, with record enrollment and ever-increasing programs, we believe that God is calling the school to that next step of faith and that next bit of growth, all for building His kingdom.
I personally do not believe that a Christian-based education is for everyone. In fact, I believe that we’d be really missing the boat if all Christian students were in Christian schools. However, I do know that it is the right choice for many families and students; it has been for our family. I also believe that many strong Christian leaders of tomorrow are being molded in Christian schools today. That is why the mission of CAS has become so important to me. I know that the school is having an impact on our community (as well as the greater world as our students go on to college and careers) today and will in the future as well.
I will covet your prayers for the school during this time – please pray for the board, the administration and staff, the students and their families, and our larger community. Please pray that, together, we will discover God’s vision for the school and have the faith and courage to pursue it.
Thank you so much.
